Alengrin (1254) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
The tripel and first beer from this Brugues-based beer company, with thick, off-white, sticky head and lightly hazy, golden blonde robe. Aroma of unripe peach, bread, grains, coriander and cauliflower. Subdued fruitiness, rounded mouthfeel, pale malts, grainy with some DMS, coriander touch, yeasty, mild hoppiness in the finish. Cliché and not entirely flawless, redundant as there are already many tripels on the Belgian market - and many better ones than this.

jmgreenuk (4251) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast, zesty citrus. The flavour is medium bitter light sweet with a smooth yeast, sweet malt palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. One of the old school beers but not bad to sample.

Licht troebel, lichtgoud, witte kraag. Aroma is gist, kruiden, boter en graan. Smaak als aroma. Body is redelijk, had iets voller gemogen. Carbo is goed. Nette tripel.

Bamsen78 (3106) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle @ ’t Poatersgat. Pours hazy light straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit, flowers and yeast, with touches of malt. Sweetish, malty flavour, with pronounced acidic touches of fruit and flowers. Estery and hoppy notes towards the finish, which is rather rough and long-lasting. Okay.
